Platformer is a very simple game, but with all the new additions (and my discovery that some people, notably my robotics team, struggle with it), I have decided to put together this simple, CSS-based about page. (The challenge is no-JS because I write a lot of JS already and want to be less dependent on it).

I've prepared a file folder of sorts for Platformer information:

In Platformer, you begin playing by loading the page, choosing a game (Default is already there, you can create new games with the button on the bottom right), and clicking Play. Your current phase will be saved every time you advance.

Wait, what's a phase?

A phase is a collection of levels. You can choose whatever level to play in that phase, but you must beat every level to progress.

Hold on, how do I actually play?

You use the arrow keys. When you see little tan blocks, put your mouse on them and you'll see more instructions.
  1. Beat Spaceport: Get the last key first. That fight with the fish is almost unwinnable, but if you get the last key first then drop in front of the ending platform you'll find no enemies in your way.
  2. Win at Shadow levels after you've already fallen: Get lucky and be in one without breaking platforms. Breaking platforms are a Shadow element that make it impossible to advance if you fall. Not a bug - a feature!
  3. Get the most totally epic score ever: Prolong the first bossfight. The boss spawns infinite bats under some circumstances, and killing each bat can get you 20 points (15 + heal), so you'll be able to get infinite money.
